Does anybody go on tea dates?
Is it actually 'a thing' - or is it just something I did with my friends for so long that I came to assume that everyone else did , too?
Once upon a time, a couple of friends and I would have regular tea dates at each other's houses. We'd plan on an afternoon when we were all free, buy at least three packets of milk, treats, make thermos flasks full of tea, and occasionally even make the treats ourselves. And then we'd sit down together...and we'd just talk. We'd talk for hours about life and its challenges, and then we'd pray for each other before parting ways.
Turning 30 felt like reaching an incredible milestone. 21 felt good, 25 was exciting, but 30 felt different, somehow...and bigger!
I struggled and was unsure of myself throughout my 20s, but I feel like everything started falling into place as I was approaching 30, and it just keeps getting better and better each day. 😊
Another advantage of arriving on the third floor is realising how much I've learnt over the last three decades. Not only have I learnt what to let go of and what to hold on to, but I've also learnt what not to care about so much and what to value more, what to spend less time thinking about and what to spend more time working on, among other things.
In an effort to share the knowledge we've acquired so far with you, my sister and I expanded on these and many other life lessons in a long conversation.
You can catch Part (I) of it in the video below. 😉
As Christmas celebrations are coming to an end, and the beginning of a new year is fast approaching, it always feels like the right time to look back on the last twelve months and see what they've taught me...
Now, I'm not really one for New Year's resolutions - I believe that any time is the right time to make life-changing decisions. However, I also believe that a new year represents a new beginning in a way. It's a great opportunity to look back and see what you can learn from your past mistakes, as well as to look forward and figure out how to approach the next year.
My Sister's My Keeper
It's been a whirlwind of a month!
From preparing for my finals, to graduating from Uni.,and finally moving out of the place I have called home for the past year. 😢
Life is changing fast. And the transition has been a bit overwhelming for me.
Thankfully, not only did my family come down to celebrate my graduation with me, but my sister stayed behind for a bit longer to help me out with everything.
World, Meet Debz...
Debz Meets World turned TWO!
Reading that statement back both surprises and excites me. 😃
It hasn't been long since I started blogging, but it's been quite the journey - one that has taught me way more than I ever thought I could learn in 24 months.
Although my initial plan was to release a video introduction of the website when I was launching the blog, I ended up making the decision to postpone it & to do it at a later time when I felt like I could better explain the motivation behind creating this blog.
That time is now.
